A supergolden rectangle

  • Tony Crilly (a1)


Can we produce a ratio ψ to rival the golden ratio ϕ? In this article I shall construct a variant of the classical golden rectangle by choosing a different geometrical property. The rectangle described has more advanced mathematical properties than its golden relation, though it is not extravagant. In this sense it could be described as a supergolden rectangle.
